Died from Grief


Old Resident of Indiana Shed Tears Over Assassination of McKinley.

     Laporte, Ind., Sept. 26.—Caleb Harvey, an old and wealthy resident died to-day, a direct result of grieving over the assassination and death of McKinley. Physicians say he literally cried himself to death. He wept for hours continuously. While in paroxysms of grief his suffering was intense. It was impossible to control or assuage his grief and to the hour of dissolution he wailed constantly. Physicians consider the case without precedent.
